A person who wants something will find a way; a person who doesn’t will find an excuse

So, I need some real, pictoral accountability. I like those transformation contests I see all over the internet, so I am gong to do my own transformation and be accountable by taking pictures as often as possible. At least weekly, maybe even dai... Read more

Whew, conferences are a great way to get off-plan! Especially the kind with all-included meals and plenty of snacks during the breaks. I'm sure I ate too much this week. I definitely ate enough wheat (ouch!) for some serious antibody action (if ... Read more

If you’re going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh abo

Man, do I feel crummy today. Last night we had a party, and I not only ate too much, I clearly ate too much wheat. I then did a good job of bringing all the leftovers to church, but did a bad job of eating a bit more there (those mostly I stuck ... Read more

The best inspiration is not to outdo others, but to outdo ourselves.

Today, I walked to the mall from work. Typically, I take the bus (which costs $1.25 until I pay $20 to get a new UMass ID), but the weather was nice and we were intending to go out to dinner, so I thought I would walk. I mapmyrun'd it and it was... Read more

If we think happy thoughts, we will be happy. If we think miserable thoughts, we will be miserable.

I found an interesting podcast today (http://weightloss.podomatic.c

If stupidity got us into this mess, then why can't it get us out?

Tonight for dinner, I made black bean pizza with a polenta crust. It was pretty good! The crust was a big too mushy in the middle, and I need to find a way to either thin it out in the pan or thicken it, maybe a few more egg whites. It was toppe... Read more

I eat merely to put food out of my mind.

I burned my crispy potatoes tonight. It was really sad, because they were spiced PERFECTLY!! They also burnt with only about 10 minutes before Bill was going to be home, and I had to completely revamp the dinner plan. We ended up with microwave ... Read more

The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience.

Dude, I should never go on sugar binges. My metabolism still hasn't recovered, I've gotten dizzy on and off all day, and kept needing to eat things. I need to be more particular about pairing protein and fiber with my sugars, even if I am going ... Read more

Your stomach shouldn’t be a waste basket

Today, I learned that too much sugar definitely affects me ... but not the same way too much wheat does. I ended up in a serious chocolate situation while sorting out the 15 thousand pages and schedules involved in MA and IN state part-time resi... Read more

We should consider every day lost in which we have not danced at least once.

I made hot cross buns for church tomorrow. Gluten-free, vegan, and other allergen-free hot cross buns. They look pretty good, I will have one tomorrow. My husband never heard of hot cross buns before I made them today. He never even heard the so... Read more

Think highly of yourself because the world takes you at your own estimate

I read something yesterday that I really liked. It was about negative self-talk and weight and eating. Essentially, we tend to treat ourselves terribly, and in ways that we would never treat other people especially those we love. We should love ... Read more

The good ended happily and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means

So, I've been a little behind in the blog. Sometimes, life happens. I'll back up a bit. First, my great-aunt died. Yes, I knew her and had met her on many occassions, and more importantly I knew a number of her children and grandchildren (my se... Read more

No long story right now. It was a bad weekend for diet and exercise. Very, very bad. And I went to a funeral in NY. I'm very tired. I'm posting my plan for next week, and I hope to get back on track starting tomorrow for a good two weeks! I'll b... Read more

Ugh. I think I've found the amount of wheat that makes my stomach unhappy: 1/4 package of beef pasta hamburger helper. I used up the one box we had tonight, and now I feel jumbly and gassy (I'm sure you didn't want to hear that). Definitely no m... Read more

Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself.

Today's quote is from Thoreau. Yesterday was my veggie/fruit experiment. From the time I woke up until dinner at 5:45pm, I only ate fruits and vegetables (and a couple of additions derived from fruits and vegetables). I also ate whenever I ... Read more
